Queer Latin@ American Migration and Performance Studies

Queer Latin@ American Migration and Performance Studies
A Duke-UNC inter-institutional Working Group currently recruiting members.

The objective of this working group is to unite scholars and artists around issues of queerness and queer theory, performance studies and performance as research, and Latin American Studies/Latino Migration Studies through dialogue, writing, performance, workshops, presentations, and collaborations across multiple disciplines. The group will seek to bring in some of the leading scholars and artists in these fields to expose those involved in and/or interested in the group to the current work being done around these issues. They will also seek to expose the larger UNC and Duke communities to these artists and scholars.
